dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's

has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then

later in the next couple of hours on cnn. thanks so much. >> thanks again, carol. >> thank you, tj. >>> just moments ago, we got this new statement from louis freeh. of course, he is the guy in charge of this internal investigation into penn state and what officials knew or didn't about jerry sandusky. quote, our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at penn state. the most powerful men at penn state failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who sandusky victimized. that's a pretty damning statement. also awaiting details in philadelphia, attorneys for sandusky's victims. including tom klein, who represents victim number five. victim number five was 11 years old when he met sandusky through the second mile charity. he told jurors about one visit to the penn state campus with sandusky. and victim number five said they were in the sauna when sandusky exposed himself. attorney tom klein is here now. welcome, tom. >> good morning. >> you just heard me read that lat

remember when jimmy the greek made these comments and they played back by cnn's larry king. take a listen. >> black is a better athlete to begin with. he was bred to be that way because of his thighs that goes up to his back and they can jump higher and run faster because of their bigger thighs. the white man has to overcome that. they don't try hard enough to overcome it. it goes all the way to the civil war where during the slave trading, the slave owner would breed his big black to his big woman. so he could have a big black kid. >> another nobel prize winner there. >> just hearing that, you are going just stop right there. jimmy was promptly fired for his comments. michael johnson is a sportscaster. should he be fired? our guests will weigh in next. stand by. anti-freeze wash and dry diesel self-serve fix a flat jumper cables 5% cashback signup for 5% cashback at gas stations through september. it pays to discover. there it is ! there it is ! where ? where ? it's getting away ! where is it ? it's gone. we'll find it. any day can be an adventure. that's why we got a subaru. love wherev

that paterno did not know that sandusky was a child predator. joining us live from philadelphia, cnn contributor and patriots news reporter sara ganim. you've been covering this story from the very beginning. this is a panel that reviewed more than, what, 3.5 million documents, held 430 interviews before coming up with this report. how does this break down in terms of who was most responsible? >> well, judge louie freeh said it comes down to these four people, joe paterno, the president graham spanier and those two penn state officials who have already been charged with lying in the criminal investigation, tim curley and gary schultz. when he was asked about other employees, or more wide cover-up, he denied any other employees are responsible for actively concealing the allegations against jerry sandusky. he did lay some blame on the board of trustees for a lack of oversight. he said they were simply too lax and let a couple of people get away with too much power and not enough responsibility to report. but as far as other people that they lay blame for actively concealing jerry sand
by a needle but declined medical treatment. federal agents have launched a criminal investigation now. cnn's sandra endo is live in washington with the very latest. this is just outrageous. what have authorities uncovered so far? >> a full blown investigation is under way. the fbi and local authorities in the netherlands are trying to figure out how the needles got into those turkey sandwiches in the first place. a spokesperson says the neelds were found in sandwiches on flights from amsterdam to minneapolis, seattle, and two flights to atlanta. two of the needles were found by passengers and one was discovered by an air marshall. when delta found out about the needles in the food, the airline says it notified all 18 flights from amsterdam to stop serving the sandwiches. here's what one passenger who actually bit into one of the contaminated sandwiches said whe he spoke to affiliate ktsp. >> i bit down on it so that i wasn't biting down on the sharp side, but the flat side. it could have been a bad injury orally, but had i taken a big swallow and swallowed that down, i'd have a needle insi
themselves. here's one reason why the paterno family might be worried. cnn had purported e-mails that were leaked to us involving an exchange among penn state officials, and in one of those e-mails they discuss a plan after that 2001 show incident to notify jerry sandusky and, among other things, to notify outside authorities, child welfare. but in another e-mail there's a reference from the athletic director that he spoke to joe paterno and then the director changes his mind about contacting child welfare authorities. now the paterno family just yesterday issued this statement that reads in part, joe paterno did not cover up for jerry sandusky. joe paterno did not know jerry sandusky was a pedophile. joe paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of jerry sandusky. to claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth. so, ali, we'll see how the free report may address all of this. >> one of the big problems, it's interesting, it apparently didn't really aect university's fundraising last year, but also denying any knowledge of the sex abuse is former penn state president

if it was just inappropriate or horseplay, why is it as cnn has read in purported e-mails that penn state officials were worried about being vulnerable or possibly not and they didn't report it to any outside authorities. all good questions that we expect to be addressed in some way, soledad. >> i have to imagine there will be some focus on what exactly joe paterno knew and his family has a statement that they put out. they say this. joe paterno did not cover up for jerry sandusky. joe paterno did not know that jerry sandusky was a pedophile. joe paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of jerry sandusky. to claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth. he wrote an op-ed about seven months ago before he died obviously and said focus on it was really focused on the legacy of the football program and the school. tell me about that. >> that's right. he wrote this just after the scandal broke and this was meant to be an op-ed piece but according to family spokes people and in the rush of event it is never got published. it was sent to some former football players and t
